Descrição

From Saving Lucas Biggs authors Marisa de los Santos and David Teague comes a heartwarming middle grade adventure about two misfits discovering the importance of just being themselves.

When thirteen-year-olds Aaron and Audrey meet at a wilderness camp in the desert, they think their quirks are enough to prevent them from ever having friends. But as they trek through the challenging and unforgiving landscape, they learn that they each have what it takes to make the other whole.

Luminous and clever, Connect the Stars takes on some hefty topics of the day—bullying, understanding where you fit in, and learning to live with physical and mental challenges—all in a joyous adventure kids will love!

    I received this as an ARC. I haven't read much in the middle grade category but am trying to remedy that problem. This the story of 2 children who are different at least in their eyes that have been sent to a wilderness camp. There they meet other children who also are different but not in a bad way. Each child contributes something to the camp. Audrey knows when someone is lying and Aaron remembers everything he has seen or heard. As they continue to do things at the camp, they begin to realize that together they can be whole. Camp presents all types of challenges and they rise to the occasion .

    This is a story about a group of misfit kids who are sent to a dessert survival camp because their parents want to help them change. Audrey has become a hermit because she can tell any time people are lying which makes it hard to be around people. She can't think of any reason why anyone should ever tell a lie and gets really upset when anyone does. Aaron has a head full of facts. He remembers everything he reads, sees, or hears and comes out with those facts on any occasion. this makes him great at Quiz Bowl until they ask a question about feelings. He can't do feelings. They are completely baffling to him. Audry and Aaron and teamed up with Kate who seems overwhelmingly sad but who has the ability to walk in someone else's shoes and Louis whose senses are hyper and who is afraid of many things. The four of them have to team up to survive the challenges set them by the crazy camp leader Jare. Of course, they also have to team up to survive the bullying of Daphne and Randolph. Over the course of the two and half weeks that the camp lasts, the kids learn to play to their strengths and adjust for their weaknesses. And Audrey, despite her determination not to, makes friends who will last a lifetime. I think that middle schoolers will enjoy this story both for the desert setting and challenges that the kids face to survive. I also think that they will see themselves in the characters and will enjoy getting to know them.

    his is an amusing, adventure novel.Aaron and Audrey are not your typical teens. Audrey has a super power, so to speak. She can always tell is someone is lying. She has become obsessed with lying and decides it’s best to abstain from any form of friendships because everyone lies, so the novel begins by showing what Audrey’s life is like and why she chooses this extreme life. Then, you meet Aaron, who also has a super power. He can remember anything he reads, sees, or hears. You’ll get to see what his life is like as well. He seems terribly smart, but is unable to make any form of inference. He may know information, but he doesn’t can’t analyze them to find their importance.These two meet at a desert camp in New Mexico. All the kids are divided into groups. Aaron and Audrey are with two other teens. They are given tasks each day that they must solve. Rewards can follow. I loved their group. Audrey needs friends--she needs to not push people away for fear of being hurt, and Aaron needs to learn about feelings, not facts. The other two members have their own demons to slay in the midst of fighting off the mean bullies. As the novel progresses, you see them become a team and overcome challenge after challenge. It’s dangerous in the desert in the summer!I loved this novel, laughing a lot. The characters are engaging and fun. Give it a go!
